At the 2017 All Africa Music Awards, pianist Nduduzo Makhathini won the Best Jazz Artist award. His musical output has led him to be described by Seton Hawkins of All About Jazz to be “a truly singular pianist, an astonishingly gifted composer, and a deeply nuanced thinker on the music… one of the [South Africa]’s most remarkable talents.”

His 2017 album Ikhambi was the first to be released on Universal Music South Africa and won Best Jazz Album at the South African Music Awards (SAMA) in 2018. His Blue Note debut, Modes of Communication: Letters from the Underworlds, was named one of the “Best Jazz Albums of 2020” by The New York Times, and was followed by In the Spirit of Ntu in April 2022.

Makhathini’s comments on  In the Spirit of Ntu: “This project was conceived at a difficult time in South Africa, a time of confusion and conflict. It was, once more, a period of burning fires, riots and massacres. In this sense, the music that I have composed is not surrounding these fires as a backdrop or soundtrack - these sounds are part of the discourse. They project from the burning fires until the fires stop burning. What remains is what these sounds seek to restore. Ntu as a creative force that seeks to lead us to remember our essence.”

  2. Good day everyone, straights, guys, bi’s, trans persons…

    I thought this was rock blog. Wtf is this? Perhaps those who appreciate it would explain why. I like to be fair to all and keep an open mind but this is pretentious tuneless crap.

    I’d rather cut my coc off with a can opener than listen to this .

    Zep, Stones, Floyd, Purple, Hendrix, Cream - that’s what readers of BigO want.
